- Ecoenzymatic stoichiometry in relation to productivity for freshwater biofilm and plankton communitiesRobert L Sinsabaugh
Biology Department, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131, USA
Microb Ecol 60:885-93. 2010..These relationships can be integrated into the stoichiometric and metabolic theories of ecology and used to analyze community metabolism in relation to resource constraints...
- Integrating resource utilization and temperature in metabolic scaling of riverine bacterial productionRobert L Sinsabaugh
Biology Department, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87131, USA
Ecology 91:1455-65. 2010....
- Stoichiometry of soil enzyme activity at global scaleRobert L Sinsabaugh
Department of Biology, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM, 87131, USA
Ecol Lett 11:1252-64. 2008..These trends provide insight into the biogeochemical processes that create global patterns in ecological stoichiometry and organic matter storage...
- Ecoenzymatic stoichiometry of microbial organic nutrient acquisition in soil and sedimentRobert L Sinsabaugh
Biology Department, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico 871312, USA
Nature 462:795-8. 2009..Because ecoenzymatic activities intersect the stoichiometric and metabolic theories of ecology, they provide a functional measure of the threshold at which control of community metabolism shifts from nutrient to energy flow...
- Microbial responses to nitrogen addition in three contrasting grassland ecosystemsLydia H Zeglin
Department of Biology, MSC03 2020, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131, USA
Oecologia 154:349-59. 2007..91, P < 0.001). In these grassland ecosystems, soil microbial responses appear constrained by a molecular-scale (pH) edaphic factor, making potential breakdown rates of SOM resistant to N enrichment...
- Shifting fungal endophyte communities colonize Bouteloua gracilis: effect of host tissue and geographical distributionJose Herrera
Department of Biology, Truman State University, Kirksville, Missouri 63501, USA
Mycologia 102:1012-26. 2010..These results increase the possibility that at least some of these common and widely distributed core members of the RAF community form important, intimate and long lasting relationships with grasses...
- Microbial responses to long-term N deposition in a semiarid grasslandMartina Stursova
Biology Department, MSC 03 2020, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131, USA
Microb Ecol 51:90-8. 2006..Microbial responses to N deposition in this semiarid grassland were distinct from those of forest ecosystems and appear to be modulated by inorganic N accumulation, which is linked to precipitation patterns...
- Laccase gene composition and relative abundance in oak forest soil is not affected by short-term nitrogen fertilizationChristian L Lauber
Department of Biology, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM, 87131 0001, USA
Microb Ecol 57:50-7. 2009..Furthermore, laccase gene composition may be tied to factors that structure microbial communities in general, as soil laccase gene communities are more similar to other forest soils than with the corresponding litter...
- Decomposition of leaf litter from a native tree and an actinorhizal invasive across riparian habitatsMary J Harner
Department of Biology, University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87131, USA
Ecol Appl 19:1135-46. 2009..As a result, retention and mineralization of litter N within these forests is controlled by hydrologic connectivity to the river, which affects litter export and in situ decomposition...
- Novel root fungal consortium associated with a dominant desert grassAndrea Porras-Alfaro
Department of Biology, MSC03 2020, 1 The University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM 87131 0001, USA
Appl Environ Microbiol 74:2805-13. 2008..Other common orders colonizing the roots included Sordariales, Xylariales, and Agaricales. By contributing to drought tolerance and nutrient acquisition, DSF may be integral to the function of arid ecosystems...
